The wonderful story of tiger grass

Regardless of whether tiger grass, pennywort, centella asiatica or pennywort are mentioned, the umbelliferous plant native to the tropics is always meant.

Since the plant can be cultivated well in moist soil, it can now also be found in Europe. This is how ananné relates the active ingredient from Brittany/France.

The figurative name tiger grass comes from the legend according to which injured tigers rub themselves on the stalks of the plant to heal their wounds. This story pretty much says it all about the wonderful healing properties of tiger grass.

The medicinal plant has long been known in Ayurvedic and traditional Chinese medicine. It is used to promote wound healing and to strengthen the immune system. Due to its antibacterial and wound-healing properties, tiger grass is one of the most important medicinal plants with anti-inflammatory properties.

Centella asisatica has also found its way into cosmetics for a long time. But just in the last few years, the medicinal plant in the form of cica creams has experienced a real boom again. The name is composed of C for Centella and -ica from Asiatica. The positive effect on scars and eczema, but also on sore or sunburnt skin, has given the Cica cream a permanent place in many medicine cabinets.

However, it not only has a positive effect on wound healing, but also antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and regenerative properties. This makes the plant a very interesting ingredient for cosmetic products. On the skin, the medicinal plant normalizes the growth rate of the epidermal cells. In this way, it prevents excessive corneal cell formation, which can be caused by mild inflammation, for example. The effect is reflected in the noticeably reduced occurrence of redness and dandruff.
